*MTV’s all-new series “Ex On The Beach Couples” is a spin-off of the network’s iconic global franchise “Ex on The Beach,” and this time follows six couples and their exes from around the world, per the official synopsis.

Hosted by relationship expert Kamie Crawford (Catfish: The TV Show, Are You The One?), these couples have one thing in common: the ever-lingering ex.

“While these couples are ready to get engaged, their previous relationships are holding them back. The series puts each couple through a series of intense challenges and relationship-building exercises and they will decide if they can finally move on from their past relationships,” per MTV’s synopsis. 

Check out the trailer for the new series above and meet the couples below.

About the Couples

While everything was seemingly on a high note, Jamie then asked Thailah to be in an open relationship. That decision brought up a lot of jealousy because Jamie thinks that Thailah is too flirtatious. Charlie, Thailah’s ex, doesn’t believe that she wants to be in an open relationship and hopes to be the one that saves the day for Thailah.
